Marie West
Marie loves working with kids.

When asked, ”What brought you to West Ridge Academy?” She enthusiastically says, “The kids! What an inspiration they are! It is through their struggles and their bravery that they help me too. There is nothing else I would rather be doing!”

Marie is originally from Chicago, Illinois, but now calls Salt Lake City her home.

She is a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies. She then attended Adler School of Chicago, where she earned her Masters degree in Counseling Psychology.

Marie has two teenage sons who are amazing-creative, athletic and academically gifted. She could not be more proud! “Being a mother is hard work,” Marie says. “And I respect all of you working hard too. It takes a village!”

Marie has many hobbies and interests of which are reading, art, local theater, and simply venturing to places in and around Salt Lake City perhaps strange and unknown.
